Rental accommodation wanted

I recently moved to Puhoi and currently living in temporary accommodation. I enjoy the vibe of this community and would like to find a more permanent living situation here.
I am a mature, health professional working in the Auckland and Rodney districts, and a musician. I have been a home owner and also have excellent references from past landlords.
I am looking for a one or two-bedroom place, preferably unfurnished or partly furnished as I have a reasonable amount of ‘stuff’. However, I will consider all options, a barn, a long-term house-sit or flatmate situation. I do require access to internet as I run my own business and prefer a semi-rural setting.
I have skills which include gardening and animal care and spent many years living on a self-sufficient block of land in the Wairarapa. I am responsible, tidy and an environmentalist so you can be assured your property and animals will loved.
If you know of something that may fit my requirements I would be really grateful for any suggestions or leads. I am available to move anytime between now and November.
